Alteryx, the Analytics Automation company, has announced the Early Access of the Designer experience in the Alteryx Analytics Cloud to make analytics accessible to all users.

The new Designer interface will be powered by the Alteryx Analytics Cloud platform, meaning all cloud users will have access to the browser-based no-code analytics tool, with in-database pushdown processing for cloud data warehouses.

Thomas Oscroft, Head of Data Operations, Genomics England, comments, "Genomics England provides essential services to support clinicians to diagnose and tailor treatments for cancers and rare diseases. We needed a platform that could support us in carrying out this vital work without interrupting our day-to-day operations.

"The Alteryx Analytics Cloud platform checked all the boxes because it was low-code, cloud-based, secure, robust, and scalable. Adopting Designer Cloud has helped us cut our delivery times by 50%, even while the company was scaling. It helps us get real-time information faster, make better decisions, and democratise analytics."

Key highlights of the solution:

  • Easy to use, easy to access: The no-code/code-friendly Designer interface is now accessible via any web browser. Anywhere, anytime on any machine, everyone across the enterprise can build easy-to-use workflows to prepare, blend, and analyse data to drive better outcomes, Alteryx states.
  • Re-imagined for the cloud: The new Designer experience includes built-in Scheduling to effortlessly automate analytics and workflows.
  • Optimised for cloud databases: Automated and visual in-database processing for cloud data platforms enables analysts to work with large datasets directly where they are, unlocking faster and lower cost insights from big data.

Tarik Dwiek, Head of Technology Alliances at Snowflake, says, "Snowflake's partnership with Alteryx makes it easier and more accessible for our joint customers to transform big data into actionable insights.

"With its intuitive analytics and in-database processing on Snowflakes single, integrated platform, the Alteryx Analytics Cloud provides advanced analytics and data science innovation in the cloud, which helps our customers get ahead of market demands by making strategic business decisions faster."

Suresh Vittal, Chief Product Officer, Alteryx, says, “Alteryx has over 8,000 customers who love the ease-of-use of Designer, and the appetite for transforming using data and analytics is only going up. The new Alteryx Analytics Cloud experience empowers enterprises with the flexibility and scalability of the cloud so they can make analytics more accessible to every user across their organisation.”
